|mono ep - martin schulte|
and here goes: martin schulte improvising on industrialism theme, using sound of minimal techno for it. 'mono' is a pulse of millstones of a flour-grinding factory; jam-session of plasterer's roller and darby; live show of a digger, wielding a pick and a spade with entry on encore; a brick-yard's visit card; distillation of all dry matters and their quality certification. 'night' is the marseillaise of urbanism: chronometer's mechanism is ticking twenty four - seven, somebody whisks and whisks, ...

|warm up - mikel mendia|
the music of mikel mendia (spain) with it's peculiar structural roughness has fitted niceky in the context of modern techno dub. one might asume, that "warm up" & "kyoto" were gathered specially from the scruples of the same vibe, which once lived in sunflower unpurified dub.

|ucomputer ep - holden & unit 21|
the spirit of the first net-release half-opened the holes, where the green rat will be making its promenades. following the "nothing amiss, when saving whiskers and tail" principle, wanderratte had felt crackling of the musical linen on its own back ('recommand' track) and came to the conclusion, that techno is on the verge of foul - i.e. when it's not yet hard, but already catchy ('ucomputer remix') - provokes a natural reflex of musculoskeletal system...

|remixes - martin schulte + eric delay|
the time has come for the next release of green rat records – a joint ep from two young techno producers – eric delay and martin schulte. what exactly spatial feelings and how deep they can embrace the listener, the name ‘underwater’ of ambient composition speaks by itself. the narrative comes slowly in it, drop-by-drop. echo/delay on thin guitar voice and uncommon for above-water nature sounds, amplifies the estrange effect...
